For Josh Galuszka (pictured below) a philosophy of keeping it simple has proven to be stunningly successful for him and could yet prove to be a relief to thousands of apprentices throughout New Zealand.
Josh is a Wellington based Recruitment Consultant with KeySkills Recruitment and the creator behind the Record of Work app which records the on-the-job training notes for apprentice carpenters.
The app, which started as a thought three years ago, saw Josh win an Award for Excellence at the 2018 NZ Microsoft ICT Awards.
“I guess that means I’m legit now,” Josh, who developed the app on the side while working with Key Skills NZ said. “I can finally get over the massive sense of impostor syndrome that I carry everywhere I go. Honestly, I didn’t even know there were awards at the event. I just went to promote the app.
“I have worked in industrial labour-hire for 13 years and part of my role has been assisting
apprentices with their assessments and finding the right work to complete their apprenticeships.
“The feedback I kept getting was that the guys were really disorganised around their admin. Apprentice carpenters are supposed to keep an on-the-job diary of the work they have done and what tools they have used while complementing that with photos.
